Guide to Boston

Climate

Boston is loveliest between May and November, as that's when the weather is at its balmiest. The Harvard, MIT and Boston University campuses look picturesque at this time as they welcome new students just in time for the start of the Fall semester. The weather gets bitingly cold between November and December, so a good pair of leg warmers and a thick jacket would keep you toasty as you duck into one of the many pubs filled with tipsy intellectuals.

Boston neighborhoods

The most notable neighborhoods in Boston are: Cambridge, the intellectual hotbed as it is home to both Harvard and MIT; Beacon Hill, where even the air smells of old money; North End, also known as Boston's Little Italy; and Fenway/Kenmore, the entertainment district where you'll find all the museums, blues and jazz pubs, top-rated restaurants, and sports grounds.

What to do in Boston

Walk the Freedom Trail and enjoy Italian food

Walk the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile path paved in red brick-lined with several major historic attractions including Faneuil Hall, Old North Church, the Paul Revere House, King’s Chapel and the Bunker Hill Monument. Head to North End for all the treats that come along with a considerable Italian immigrant population, including pizzas, pastas, gelatos, cannolis and coffee.

Photogenic Boston

If your 'gram is feeling neglected, then Acorn Hill's charming cobblestone streets, 19th-century Victorian row houses and seasonal decorations outside each home will have that problem sorted. The visiting intellectuals need not worry, for Boston's Public Library will have you wandering its 218-foot-long reading room with arch ceilings for hours.

Museums & sporting events

Alternatively, the city's finest museums, including the Institute of Contemporary Arts and the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum are also well worth a visit. Sports fans can catch a Red Sox, Celtics, or Bruins game at Fenway Park, one of the city's oldest and most revered stadiums.

Eating out in Boston

Do not miss the traditional Boston baked beans and toast with a side of New England clam chowder before biting into a Boston cream pie to satiate your sweet tooth. You haven't truly visited New England until you've had a lobster roll. So if it's your first time in the city, make a beeline to James Hook & Co or Legal Harborside. If not, then the Oyster House, which is located in a gorgeous Georgian brick building, has served excellent fare to the likes of Franklin Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy.
